Israeli model and actor Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Warner Bros. sequel to Man of Steel. The former Miss Israel, who turned 28 in April (and was thusly appointed ‘Scroll crush’ by my predecessor), has had roles in the past three Fast and Furious movies as well as a guest spot on Entourage.

Director Zack Snyder said in a statement, “Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”

Mazel tov, Gal.
